Was wondering whether in a Nix environment I can change the content of the host file, mainly to prevent one or two site being accessed from that particular user, and only for his account (not with admin privileges).

I though about the rc.local file, but I'm not sure this could work.

Is there any other local config file I can use?

Thanks Andrea
